Deployment is blocked

    Hi All,


    Is there some document from where i could get details of Nolio database ERD? My deployment is being stuck at 0% with a message that 'waiting for previous processes to finish' whereas, there is no other process running for that application.

    Is there something i could check in the database to make sure that no such flag is set and that is why deployment is being blocked?


    Meanwhile , i would still need the ERD for my reference.

    Thanks in advance.

    you might have a "blocked process run" that does not show up in the "online process reports". Easiest way to find (and kill ?) that process is going through the JMX interface. Have a look at this post Release Automation KB: Locate and Stop Running Processes from JMX 


    hope this helps.

    yes, as benny said, you could use the jmx for that. the first try would be the mentioned online process report, if there nothing pops up, then the jmx


    you mostly run into this situation, when the server that the deployment needs to use is used by a different deployment/process

    Hi Gents,

    My apologies for delay in reply. Today, I tried using jmx to check any ongoing deployments. The URL http://NAC:20203/mbean?objectname=noliocenter%3Atype%3Dinfo did not lead me to anywhere. Then I checked the 'Domain: noliocenter' on the 'Server view' tab and this is what i could see.



    I am not able to find and stop the jobs which are still in-progress. I am still facing the 'blocked-waiting for previous run to finish' issue.


    Best regards,

    Amit Joshi

    did you check the online report in automation studio? I would suggest running a report there with the selection that it shows the online processes for year to date

         The NAC JMX server should look like this could you confirm you were connected to the NAC JMX, I would also suggest checking the Process report on the dashboard this should show if you have any running processes.

    In addition to the reports and JMX's noliocenter:type=info bean you can also use the NAC's JMX to search for releasecenter:type=info bean. This bean provides a method to getAllActiveReleases. You might have a look here if the reports and JMX noliocenter:type=info views do not show anything since I think these will show you active processes. 


    I'm honestly not sure if the view I mentioned will help you with a blocked deployment scenario. But the view will show you releases that are still active whether they have processes running or not. And if you're blocked without any processes running then it is worth a look. 


    If you do find something here then I would recommend taking note of the releaseId and disposing of it through the ROC. But there is a removeRelease method here too for last resort situations.

    Pheww... finally got this resolved... i was not connecting to NAC JMX console.. as pointed out by Keith.. so i connected to NAC JMX console and there were few deployments in not-complete state.. they did not appear in any kind of online audit report though.. so i stopped all active runs and now i could progress with my deployments.

    Thanks a lot for all your patience and co-operation.
